Artist Profiles » Helena Blair
Born in 1958 in Tilburg, Holland, Helena is a self-taught artist who enjoys the vibrancy of oil and gouache.
Helena's New Zealand work to date is of Auckland and Waiheke coastal scenes, while a recent painting trip to Provence, Tuscany and Umbria has inspired work featuring these areas.
Helena feels a keen need for progression and regardless of how her style develops, it is her love of colour that will forever motivate and inspire her work.
